See What Our Clients Have to Say....
Gena and Harold are two very hard working people. They always put our needs and desires first. They were available to us anytime of day or night. Gena met me multiple times at a property of interest to look at ONE more thing I wanted to check out. Harold got all information we needed to make an informed decision. He is an expert negotiator! The only thing that tops their professionalism is their sincere desire to serve their clients. It was such a pleasure to work with them to find our dream beach home! Thank you Gina and Harold!
Gena and Harold Gilbert are the two most competent realtors that I have met since moving to North Carolina 11 years ago.
They work hard,they work smart and they get the job done.
I have dealt with many "realtors" prior to meeting Gena and Harold.
None of them compare in any way.
If you want to sell ,or buy, you can make your life a lot easier if you just contact Gena and Harold Gilbert.
Gena and Harold were extremely helpful in our home buying process. Their follow-up and thoroughness were greatly appreciated. We highly recommend Gena and Harold to anyone wishing to purchase a new home!
You can’t go wrong with Gena and Harold Gilbert! Not only did they consistently seek out properties that were in the price range we were looking for, they were quick to show them to us. The process of buying a house can be very stressful, but with Gena and Harold on our side, leading and encouraging us all the way, it was a very smooth and enjoyable experience. We love our new home and we love Gena and Harold Gilbert!! Thank you Gena and Harold!

We were buying this home from Boston and needed someone to heavily rely upon to point us in the right direction especially after the sale. So many things came up that we needed to do but they referred great people and went the extra mile so many times we lost count. Whatever we needed they were there to help us!
Harold and Gena are just awesome!
Everything went smoothly because of them!!
Can't say enough positive things!
We worked with Harold. We live up near Boston and were interested in a couple of properties in the area Harold and Gena work. Harold was very accommodating given our travel imitations and made sure we were able to see the properties we were interested in on a single trip. More importantly, Harold helped out at all stages of the property purchase and thanks to his leg work we were able to get local services such as electricity and insurance without additional travel expense. He was able to get us a purchase price significantly lower than the asking price and supported us throughout the closing. There were a number of issue that came up that he was able to resolve without us having to incur the expense of flying to North Carolina again. The closing went smoothly and we are currently enjoying our new wonderful home! I would recommend Harold to others looking at properties in the area.
Gena & Harold did a great job helping us find a terrific vacation spot at the beach. They definitely know the local market, and were very responsive to all of our questions and needs. Well done!
We were so Happy with selling our former home on Scot Drive in Newport in a matter of day's( We say 3, their records say 7) and also with the purchase of our New home on Sailaway Ct. in Havelock. I love not being lost in the masses. I love that old school values are still in play along with all the Hi-Tec needs of today's Real Estate world. I believe that it should be personal, That we all deserve to feel as if our questions, need for face to face contact with an Agent is number one to them as well. You will find that in their office. Thanks Harold and Gina. We will be recommending you to every one we know. And thanks for even showing up when you did not feel well! ( And answering the phone, It is so great to hear a live voice:) )
We are so enjoying this new chapter of our lives in our new home!

Harold & Gena are long-time real estate pros in the area I was looking to buy & were very helpful with the viewing of properties within my budget. They emailed new property listings as they came on the market, & offered references for other professionals I needed to assist with the closing on the property I chose to purchase. Harold & Gena are very friendly & honest people to work with & I highly recommend them if you're looking to buy property in the Crystal Coast area.
Mr. Gilbert treated us like family! He was responsive and guiding in our home search. We will refer as many people we know to him for comprehensive real estate needs. We appreciate his laid back style yet when it was needed he was our strong advocate. Thanks to Harold we have our beach home of our dreams!!
The Gilberts as a team helped us identify a property that suited our needs and handled all of the actions necessarily to acquire it. These actions were complicated by the fact that the property was under probate and we were under time constraints. They treated us as friends as well as customers and I would recommend them to anyone.
They knew what we needed to do and helped us get that. They were honest about the market while still listening to our concerns and helped us get in the right spot.
Words cannot describe how wonderful it has been to work with Gena and Harold. This is our first experience with purchasing a vacation home. They were very responsive during the showing process, but never pushy. We live three hours away but felt connected to the area by Gena and Harold throughout the entire process. Gena was quick to respond via text messages and always called when we needed help to understand the situation or to gain clarification. Harold provided his expertise for any financial or repair concerns. They were instrumental in providing information to our lender to meet our closing date and make sure we understood all of the requirements that are unique to beach properties. When we were unable to be present for an inspection or conversation, they represented us like they were purchasing the home themselves. If you are in the market for property on the Crystal Coast, you won't find a better team than Harold and Gena Gilbert.
Gena and Harold were our buyer's agents for our recent home purchase. We originally met with them last summer when we were first planning our move to this area. At that time they gave us good advice on finding a rental property and the pros and cons of the various neighborhoods.
After we rented here a while, we decided to buy a house, and again they were very helpful in finding and showing potential houses. Once we had decided on a house, they ensured that everything was taken care of and that the purchase process flowed smoothly. They have always been extremely responsive and easy to work with. We closed on our new home this week and are very happy with how things went.
The Gilbert's provided innovative and proactive ideas and efforts in listing and showing my property. Also their management and handling of the property during the rental phase was excellent especially since I did not live in the area or know the repair options which resulted in very reasonable repair costs.
We were very pleased with how smooth everything went with Gena when it came time to sell and buy our current home. She was very efficient in getting things done, and stayed on top of everything!
Worked with us great was patent even while the banks were being a pain. And walked us through anything and everything thing we needed to know. And ensured we closed on time......

After buying with Harold and Gena, we listed our old house with them. They were great! They offered great advice and support when our house didn't sell in the time we had hoped. After taking their advice and remodeling a few things, the house sold in 2 months.
Great person to deal with. My broker in CA interviewed him personally and said he was the most knowledgeable. When it came to closing Harold was very methodical and picked up on an error so that was impressive as well.
Gena gilbert coordinated the sale of my house with my son who lives over 600 miles away. She was available to make the extra call to advise us or furnish information to the prospective buyers from us. When an issue came up very late in the closing process she deftly handled the balance of satisfaction that both buyer and seller require. Her legal expertise was crucial throughout the process. Her expertise and professionalism can't be understated.
Gena has sold two homes for us and helped us to buy one.
Repeat business is the most sincere form of flattery. I highly recommend Gena and Harold both. They are a great team.
Harold and Gena are a great "pair" that I highly recommend. They are kind, considerate, and "all about" their clients. Harold, in particular, is a great problem solver if you need anything large or small attended to.They pay attention to detail and to their clients' complete satisfaction. I hold them in high regard as Realtors! With sincere appreciation,
We listed our house for sale with Harold on a Wednesday and had a contract for the full asking price by Sunday!!! Doesn't get any better than that. Harold had sound advice and uses recent technology that made it easy for us to handle all the paperwork from out of state! Harold and Gena have helped me and my family buy and sell several properties in the area with wonderful results. Highly recommended!
Harold and Gena were great partners as my wife and I searched for a home on the North Carolina coast. We had been looking for a while. We looked in many different towns, working with several different agents. What separated Harold and Gena was their tireless work in getting to know and understand our needs and desires, while never pressuring us. Harold and Gena were excellent in the purchasing process and represented our best interests. Their customer service did not stop after closing. Harold and Gena continue to be a resource for us in setting up a house in a new area. Without reservation we would recommend Harold and Gena to anyone looking for a house on the Crystal Coast!
Gena and Harold are pros. Our experience of purchasing our dream at the beach was stress free because Harold worked so hard for us from our first meeting to closing. They showed us only the properties in our range and gave us the opportunity to look at multiple properties on our schedule. I highly recommend this team of professionals. Thank you Gena and Harold, you have made my family very happy.
The Gilberts were so attentive and helpful in every aspect of the vacation home-buying process. They were willing to go above and beyond to show us properties when we were able to be in town. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to purchase a home or second home in the EI area!
Helped us find our dream waterfront home. Worked with us for over two years to get what we wanted. Very responsive in showing homes. Harold's promptness allowed us to make an offer, negotiate, and win our property.
It was a pleasure to have Gena and Harold Gilbert of NC Coastal Properties represent me as a seller. They sold my property, long distance, in a very short period of time. Having access to the latest technology made it possible to make all of the transactions long distance. Even though I was not in NC, they answered all of my questions and kept me abreast of every stage of the sale from the listing to the closing and I felt very comfortable with their recommendations. They were very professional and I highly recommend them to anyone.
Very easy to work with, responded to our questions quickly and work with our schedule nights and weekends. Will use them again when purchasing another home for parents.
Gena and Harold were patient and helpful throughout the entire buying process. Even after countless roadblocks out of their control, we were able to find a nice home. Highly recommended.
Harold & Gena were great to work with in our efforts to find a vacation home.
Their knowledge of area and expertise was very helpful. We would highly recommend them for your real estate requirements.
We worked with Harold Gilbert and greatly appreciated his expertise, knowledge of the area and professionalism. He showed no hesitation at all when we asked to view a second house the next day even though he had to come from Morehead City to show us the house. Would highly recommend!
After 2.5+ years of trying to sell our house, I am *SO* thrilled that we finally closed on it! Thanks to our amazing realtors for sticking with us the entire way and making this happen! I HIGHLY recommend NC Coastal Properties Gena Gilbert Real Estate if you're looking to buy or sell in the area. They are simply amazing.
would like to use adjective to describe NC Costal Propertied, Stress free, patient, attentive, kind, professional,knowledgable, informative and responsive.
We will 100% be a return customer.
Gena and Harold are terrific! This is the fourth house they have sold for me. They have also helped me buy houses. They know the real estate business and they know how to successfully market a property to get it sold. They are extremely professional. They do a lot of work comparing market values and surrounding houses and give the seller or the buyer honest advice. They have an excellent reputation in the community and among their peers and they genuinely care about their clients. I definitely recommend Gena and Harold to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling - they are super to work with!

Gena and Harold are an absolute pleasure to work with!! Besides being very knowledgeable about the real estate market as a whole, they are continually there to help. Even though they are no doubt very busy, they always take the time to answer any and all questions we have as if we were their only client-they are both prompt and thorough in their correspondence. Throughout the process of selling our home, they have continually kept us up to date every step of the way. They have always put our needs before their own, just as their slogan says; their goal is to help us, even if that means sacrifice. Thank you to Gena Gilbert Real Estate for making an otherwise stressful process something that we didn't feel like we were going through alone! I would recommend these realtors to anyone trying to buy or sell a home!
We began looking at the Crystal Coast area for retirement in 2007, and were very fortunate to link up with Gena and Harold Gilbert. They kept us informed on what was available in the area in our price range, and we would make quick trips to the coast where they would take us to view these homes. We purchased and moved into our current home in 2008 and were so thankful we had their skills to guide us through the challenges of the buying experience which had just become more complicated in late 2008.
They have the knowledge and expertise to deal with a changing market and are thoroughly familiar with the entire Crystal Coast area. They also have the patience and flexibility to deal with buyers (like us) who were totally unfamiliar with housing in the area.
Having now lived in the area for 3 years, we truly recognize how fortunate we were to have selected Gena Gilbert Real Estate.
Gena and Harold are super and truly work very hard for their client. They always answered or returned my calls and took time to answer every question. Both of them were awesome about going to see MANY houses before I chose one. They know the Real Estate business inside and out and did a lot of advertising in various markets for my house. They are both extremely professional.
They showed my house a couple of time a week - every week. I also appreciated and enjoyed the newsletter they send - very helpful information. And they find out what you want in a home and then e-mail you house listings that you may be interested in. It saves the potential buyer a lot of time.
Gena and Harold are super people - I just love them. I highly recommend them.
Gena and Harold Gilbert are great to work with and for you as seller or buyer!!!They sold our condo and are looking for property for our friend from Texas.
Gena and her husband, Harold, have done a superb job for my wife and I. I could not recommend a realtor more highly than these two people.
Gina and Harold were our agents when we sold our home in 2017.
Their recommendations and advice during the process was very helpfull. Their efforts greatly facilated the process by selling the house in record time.
I recommend them to anyone for all their real estate needs.
Gena helped me purchase my first house in 2007. She was very helpful and patient during the entire process. She was easy to get a hold of and returned calls promptly. She even helped me out a lot two years later when I had trouble with my mortgage broker during a refinance. Gena has extensive local knowledge and has a wonderful team to back her up.
I have used Gena and Harold on four occasions to sell and buy a house. I would definitely use them again. They know the market better than most and they know how to advertise and market your property better than anyone I have ever seen. They always answer their phone or call you immediately back and they respond right back to e-mails. They make time for you and spend time looking at as many properties as you need to so you, the client, are happy. I admire their honesty in telling me what they feel are the pros and cons about a house. They don't just tell you what you want to hear - they tell you the truth. They stay up on the latest training and know the Real Estate laws and procedures inside and out. If I ever plan to move again, Gena and Harold will be the first phone call I make.
